How does Bailey Compare with Josh Johnson of the Marlins when it comes to career ceiling and the likelihood to get there.
As far as I understand Johnson is dubbed a career #3-4 starter but he's already on the doorstep when it comes to the majors(he's only 22 too) and is having a solid spring. Bailey on the other hand has the stuff to be a #1 pitcher but is still in A ball and had a bad season with his control last year while developing his change?
Who would you rather have?
